Overall, I'm not impressed

nursedianemg, Ebay
5 July 2014
  • Summary: Overall, I'm not impressed. The one plus of this product is the low price. And it does what it's supposed to do. But it's a pain in the neck to use. I won't know if I scanned a good image until I plug it into my computer after scanning the doc. I've had to rescan a lot of docs because I didn't get a bottom edge or maybe I went a little too fast and something got blurred. It was so time consuming that I used it for a few days and then put it away.

Works fine for black text on white pages, but that's about it.

  • Summary: The VuPoint handheld scanner is a neat device that allows you to easily scan pages from a book (getting even into that hard to reach page gutter) and can make hundreds of scans on a single set of AA batteries. Storage space has no practical limit (8 GB micro SD is more than enough to hold most people's documents, I'm not sure what the limit on micro SD is for the device). A couple of things make it a little less satisfactory than I had hoped though.

Not quite User-Friendly

Marie Johnson, Amazon
7 October 2013
  • Summary: Having noted the instructions and following it to the letter, scanning pages takes more time than I accounted for. I bought it thinking I will save time with ease of use. To my regret, I have wasted time and money. I won't recommend the product.

What!?

Bill, Amazon
29 March 2013
  • Summary: Purchased VuPoint Magic Wand Portable Scanner with Auto-Feed Dock PDS-ST450-VP for document to .PDF scanning abilities for light use at work and home. After scanning my first document, the .PDF document scanned file was reduced by close to 20% and a 1-2 inch white border placed around the scanned document. There isn't an interface to change it to a 1-to-1 scan. I called the customer service and there response was, "well that's just the way it is.

Quite disappointed.

Amy, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I bought this product hoping to scan the thousands of photos that I have accumulated over the years in a quick and easy manner, with quality that definitely wouldn't be flatbed-quality but still good enough to pass-- especially since this version offers scanning in 900dpi. I bought this with their tabletop stand which worked fine, but the quality of the scanner itself was greatly disappointing.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Quiet
  • Cons: Messy, Poor Picture

BEWARE MAC USERS!! NO OCR FOR YOU!

dnta, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: Although I now see it says the OCR software is only compatible with PC, i had looked at the System Requirements and saw it was Mac and ordered it thinking i could use the OCR software CD (which i had seen when scanning the rest of the info) to be able to edit docs scanned. However this is another example of Mac users being left out. The VuPoint rep i talked to said it was a corporate decision based on $ as there are more PC users than Mac.

Dissappointed!

  • Summary: I ordered this and ended up having to send it back because there was a blue line through the center. I liked being able to choose the color and it was easy to use but it was just that line.

Disappointing - depends on what you want it for

Moira Allen, Amazon
8 December 2010
  • Summary: If all you want is to scan an article or recipe, where the quality of the scan isn't so important, this would be a useful product. I purchased it to scan images from antique books that would be damaged if placed on a flatbed scanner. I found the product extremely disappointing, for the following reasons.
